    It’s not the first time we’ve seen this theory, bipedal robots that can walk on rough terrains and withstand the punishment of objects being thrown at it. But it’s rare that when you see a working version it’s a little hobby robot.

    There’s not too much info about the robot apart from what can be gleamed in “Dr Guero”‘s videos, but more information can be found on Dr Guero’s website. After reading through the broken English Google’s translation tool spits out it seems the human inspired robot is called Primer V5 (version number may be wrong), which is clear that it’s an ongoing project that’s been improving over some time. The aim was to create a robot with a gait similar to a humans, rather than the bent knee pose seen by most.

    Some basic information on the robot can be found at his site too:
